Posted on March 15, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine For a team that has won three World Series titles this decade, it hasn’t been easy for the San Francisco Giants to miss the postseason in back-to-back years. It must have been particularly difficult to finish 73-89 last season, even if it was a 7-win improvement from […]

Posted on February 25, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine Well, spring training is underway and it appears the Bryce Harper saga is entering the final stretch.

Posted on February 18, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine No matter how it ends, the 2019 season will mark the end of an era for the San Francisco Giants. On Monday, longtime Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced that he will retire at the end of the season. This will be his 13th season as manager of […]

Posted on February 9, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine Just when we thought the Bryce Harper sweepstakes were starting to wind down, we get a curveball. With Harper’s suitors reportedly down to four teams, it seemed like we were getting close. But that was before the San Francisco Giants threw their hat into the ring. Harper […]

Posted on January 23, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Francisco Giants are one of many teams that are going bargain hunting with the start of spring training less than a month away.

Posted on January 14, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine It’s been a quiet offseason for the San Francisco Giants. But they finally made a little bit of noise on Monday, re-signing left-handed starter Derek Holland. The sides agreed to a one-year deal with a base salary of $6.5 million. There is also a club option for […]

Posted on November 5, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Without a doubt, outfielder Bryce Harper is the star attraction of this year’s free agent class. Manny Machado may be a close second, but Harper’s free agency has been talked about practically since he made his big league debut. Obviously, it’s early in the offseason and a […]

Posted on August 25, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The 2018 season is almost over for San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey. The club announced Friday night that Posey will undergo season-ending surgery on his hip Monday. The surgery has a recovery time of six to eight months.

Posted on July 6, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Francisco Giants have endured a lot of injuries that have held them back this season. But things may finally be looking up in that department. Johnny Cueto, who was the best pitcher in baseball the first month of the season, made his long-awaited return from […]

Posted on June 20, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Francisco Giants just can’t seem to avoid injuries. Of course, they only have themselves to blame for their latest one. Closer Hunter Strickland was placed on the 10-day DL Tuesday night with a broken finger. He suffered the injury Monday night when he punched a […]

Posted on June 15, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Francisco Giants have suffered another setback on the injury front. On Thursday, third baseman Evan Longoria suffered a broken left hand after being hit by Marlins pitcher Dan Straily. At this point, it’s unclear what treatment will be appropriate or how much time Longoria will miss. […]

Posted on May 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Johnny Cueto has undoubtedly been the best pitcher in baseball this season. Unfortunately for the San Francisco Giants, his brilliant season has been interrupted by injury for the second time.

Posted on April 30, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Los Angeles Dodgers have scuffled throughout the entire month of April. On Sunday, those struggles prompted manager Dave Roberts to make a bold move.
